407:  Out of the Closet & Back In – Alex Petrarca
Love happens. Or maybe we should say, attraction happens, even if it isn't deep love. For some, that means the come out of the closet, then go back in. I know, I was one of those. For others, they believe they are gay, but based on family and societal pressure, religious beliefs, a distrust of oneself, or just downright confusion, some people give the heterosexual life a shot, only to find that, "Yep, this isn't for me, and I am truly gay!" Such is the story of today's guest. Alex Petrarca. She came out, went back in, then came out again. It's much more common than you think and it is multi-generational, even in today's more accepting society! This is her coming out story. About Alex Alex Petrarca is a filmmaker, podcast booking agent, and owner of After School Productions LLC. She has a BA in Film Studies from Rhode Island College and uses her video production savvy and compulsion to document everything in order to create episodes of Alex’s Vlog, a weekly Youtube series following the mundane adventures of a gay couple and their senior pets. Alex is also a volunteer for Vintage Pet Rescue and Girls Rock! RI in Providence. Connect With Alex Website Instagram LinkedIn
406:  They Won’t Win: Uncloseting the music within – Danny M. Cohen & Greg Lanier
Music lifts us, binds us together, and when it's really done right, it makes us think, even if that thinking is about dark subjects that no one really wants to talk about. But if we don't talk about things, those things win. So what happens when you take a stand and say, "They Won't Win!" You get a talented, gay music duo (no they aren't a couple) who is tackling some dark parts of life, in the hopes of giving others hope so they can see that they are not alone. Danny M. Cohen and Great Lanier of "They Won't Win," met through an organic circumstance at a dinner. It all started with noticing a guitar in the room and from there the relationship blossomed into the two becoming music husbands, producing folk-rock songs that take on dark subjects like partner abuse, the LGBTQ struggle, and loss. Their debut album Lost at Sea, is out and making a splash and having immediate impact with people from all walks of life. Touching, endearing, and soulful, Lost At Sea metaphorically paints the picture that we are all lost at sea in so many aspects of life...both good and bad. About They Won't Win - Danny & Greg Led by Danny M. Cohen and Greg Lanier, They Won’t Win doesn’t shy away from the tough issues with their first studio offering. Lost At Sea is filled with soulful tracks that take a deep-dive on topics like coping with loss of friends and loved ones and the grief that follows, falling in love and heartbreak, struggling with acceptance within the LGBTQ space and outside of it, and same-sex partner physical abuse – in fact the album serves as a coming-out of sorts for Lanier who reveals he is an abuse survivor. While the album is peppered with difficult themes it is also teeming with redemption, pride, and love. More than a roadmap to the LGBTQ experience, it is a roadmap to the human experience. Connect With They Won't Win - Danny & Greg Website Instagram
405:  Uncloseting The Truth of Being A Reluctant Entrepreneur – Stephen Warley
You're moving along in life. Doing the thing that you do. Then suddenly, that life plan is no longer going the direction that you thought it would. Happens to all of us and it's how we respond, not react that can make all the difference to moving ahead towards the life that you truly desire. Even if that means being a reluctant entrepreneur. Stephen Warley, a reluctant entrepreneur, has seen his own share of ups and downs as he went from being employed to self-employed. As a podcaster, coach, minimalist and vagabond traveler, he's discovered that living (un)closeted means doing work that matters using the life skills that matter to help him get there. His belief is that self-employment and becoming a reluctant entrepreneur is sneaking up on more of and more us as jobs are automated or outsourced, and that it's time for everyone to come out of the closet and learn about self-employment and embrace it. About Stephen Stephen has been happily unemployable for 15+ years now. But it hasn’t always been that way. He's been stuck and got himself unstuck many times to transform myself from compliant employee into an accidental (formerly reluctant) entrepreneur His journey to embrace the thread of his career has been a long and challenging one. In the end, it’s been totally worth it. He now lives and works on his terms. There are loads of experiences, stories and emotions he shares from his career over the past 20 years on his podcast Life Skills That Matter. He doesn't do social media, and he believes in purging on a regular basis, which makes him a minimalist. He is currently living a nomadic life for the next year to see what life will bring him.
